Mountain West Engagement Academy

Mountain West Engagement Academy

The Engagement Academy supports colleges and universities developing institutional engagement plans, effectively linking community engagement to the teaching, research, and service missions of the institution. For the first time ever, the Engagement Academy will be hosted by Campus Compact of the Mountain West (CCMW) and will be tailored to the specific issue areas and priorities that impact the social fabric of the region. This unique opportunity will allow campuses to develop engagement plans that are integrated into the campus as a tool for institutional effectiveness. Registration for the Mountain West Engagement Academy will open later this fall and space is limited, so keep your eyes open for more information and save the date on your calendar! For questions, please contact Katie Kleinhesselink, Director of Member Services for CCMW, at or 303-964-5104.


Here at CCMW we are tasked with “leading the evolution of the engaged campus,” but what does that mean? What better way to tell the story of engagement than by looking at an example of an engaged student. We would like to introduce you to Melissa Tilleman, a recent graduate of the University of Wyoming (UW), to help tell the story of how CCMW supports a campus in creating opportunities to produce engaged students.

Behold the power of service.
